  • ‘Vikings’ Cast At Comic-Con, Tease ‘Insane’ Third Season

    etcanada.com – Vikings stars Alexander Ludwig, Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick and Clive Standen were at Comic-Con to premiere a new trailer from the new season, and revealed to ET Canada’s Rick Campanelli that the upcoming third season promises to be a bloody one.

    In fact, viewers should brace themselves to bid a fond — and probably ferocious — farewell to some characters they’ve gotten to know over the past two seasons. “People are dying!” says Katheryn, who plays Lagerna. “We have lost a few characters,” she hints, “some beloved characters and some amazing characters, so it’s been a little bit in mourning on the Vikings set. But I’m telling you, it’s going to be amazing this year.”

    According to star Alexander Ludwig, who plays warrior Bjorn, the third season promises to be the most intense yet. “It gets insane,” Alexander told Rick. “I mean, the fans are going to go crazy when they see this. I’m going crazy when I read the scripts! It’s incredible!”

    Later, Rick spoke with The Strain’s Kevin Durand, who spilled some spoilers by revealing he’ll be appearing on Vikings — and may have something to do with this season’s deaths. “Do you know how that happens?” said Kevin. “Did you know that I was there? When the person dies …yeah, I’m on Vikings… it might have been my fault…”

    After Rick pressed him for more information, Kevin revealed some info about his Vikings role. “I’m a big fan of the show, and so when they called and said. ‘Michael Hirst has written this mysterious wanderer character that… ahh wanders mysteriously… I think that’s about all I can say now… he may wreak havoc, he might not,” Kevin added. “He might just be a poet.”

    Filming is currently underway on the third season of Vikings, which is set to air on History in summer 2015.

    Vikings’ Season 3: Why Is Lagertha Covered In Blood?

    Enstarz.com – Blood appears to be the makeup of choice for Vikings’ third season.

    The new King of Denmark will launch a raid on Paris when Vikings 2015, but it looks as if Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) warriors will arrive rather bruised and beaten.

    After kicking off season 3 filming with a host of sailing scenes, the History Channel series is currently taking over the fields of Ireland with new battle scenes. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper fight without the requisite blood.

    Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) will take on his new enemies with a striking blood-red handprint across his face while his mother’s blouse will be drenched in the substance.

    “Don’t mess with me. #Lagertha #behindthescenes #inamood #Vikings,” Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha) tweeted on Wednesday alongside a picture of herself donning Viking face tattoos as blood dripped form her chin.

    Meanwhile, wielding a shield and sword takes an incredible amount of practice for the series’ actors. For Gaia Weiss (Porunn), this means adding a few extra brusises to her character.

    “My legs are covered in bruises. Working on my shield coordination. Learning with my character,” Weiss tweeted on Saturday.

    ‘Vikings’ Season 3: Alfred The Great’s Mother Cast, Who Else Will Join Travis Fimmel For 2015 Return?

    Enstarz.com – Vikings is drastically expanding its cast for season 3, and with every new announcement comes a quick glimpse at Ragnar Lothbrok’s upcoming adventures.

    Now the (rather unwilling) King of Denmark, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and his Norse warriors will use his newfound power to help carve an ambitious new kingdom. For starters, Ragnar will move part of his focus from Wessex to a Roman city on the Sine. Paris, however, will provide the series with two new political foes – the Emperor Charles of France, who will be played by Lothaire Bluteau of Tudors fame; and Charles’ daughter and closest confidant, Princess Gisla (Morgane Polanski).

    Meanwhile, in Britain, the mother of Alfred the Great will be revealed, according to IFTN. Jennie Jacques will portray Judeth, the wife of King Ecbert’s (Linus roache) son Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford).

    As for the Vikings themselves, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) will receive a new second in command. The new character, named Kalf, will be played by Ben Robson.

    While each of these additions fall nicely into a specific camp, Kevin Durand’s The Wanderer presents a bit of a puzzle. A man who is not quite what he seems, The Wanderer has yet to be assigned a side in the Vikings world.

    It’s plain sailing as Viking longboats invade again

    Herald.ie – It was like taking a step back in time at Blessington Lake as fearsome warriors took to their longboats to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting locals.

    Thankfully, all the terrifying scenes were just for the new series of TV show Vikings being made by the History Channel.

    Now in its third instalment, hunky Australian actor Travis Fimmel took centre stage on the shoot as programme makers took advantage of the heatwave to film some key scenes outdoors.

    Visitors to the lake watched as several authentic-looking long-boats sailed across the calm blue waters – while Fimmel puffed on a cigarette in between takes and soaked up some sunshine.

    He plays the part of Norse hero Ragnar Lodbrok, and has set up home in Greystones while he films the acclaimed series, much to the delight of the local ladies.

    The new series looks set to be as gruesome as the previous two, given the fake bodies that were seen swinging from the trees beside the water.

    Providing a massive boost to the economy, more than 400 Irish people are involved in the big-budget production, which is worth an estimated €40m to the economy.

    Producers have made sure to enlist the services of lots of home-grown talent too, including award-winning Dublin actor Gabriel Byrne, John Kavanagh and David Pearse.

    The first series of the programme drew in an average of 189,000 viewers, with a higher number recorded for the second series.

    The show has proved a massive hit Stateside, with over eight million viewers tuning in. The third series will hit the small screens in early 2015 and looks set to replicate some of the success of the fantasy series Game of Thrones.

    New Photoshoot Photo Added

    I have added another new photoshoot photo of Travis from his Variety shoot. Check it out in the gallery.
